The president lavished praise on Mrs. Clinton for her discipline, stamina and talent. And they put a glossy shine on history by brushing off the tough primary attacks five years ago as the product of trying to find differences where, they now say, there actually were not that many.
“Despite our hard-fought primary, we had such agreement on what needed to be done for our country,” Mrs. Clinton said.
“Made for tough debates, by the way,” Mr. Obama added, “because we could never figure out what we were different on.”
“Yeah, we worked at that pretty hard,” she said.
That’s funny, because we didn’t have any problem figuring out where the candidates were different. Neither did the Obots. (No! She’s evil! EVIL!) There is a perfectly good reason why there was no significant difference between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on policy. That’s because he copied hers.
The real differences between the two candidates were in two other areas – experience and character.
She had both and he had neither.
